Stage fright!

John invited all 600 bloggers up on the stage for a farewell group photo last Saturday.  MM and I decided that load testing the stage was NOT a good idea, so he went upstairs to photo the mob, and I stayed in my seat, mid-auditorium, talking with Bee and Tal.


The stragglers were encouraged to come down to the front rows.  Check.  Safer.  We’ll go.  Tal put his hand on my shoulder, you know, to make sure I was safe in my seat, while Diane braved the crowd onstage.  And nobody got hurt.  The stage survived the impact.

Last night we went over to the rec hall for an Italian potluck dinner.  Normally we would peddle our bikes over, but MM drove me right up to the door.  He is taking good care of me.  He even went out and bought a cheesecake for our dinner contribution, and not a crumb was left to bring back home.

Yes, I am indeed taking it easy and not taking chances with my tummy.  It gets inspected on Monday.  There just might be a piece of cake on it, since we are heading up to Hobe Sound for an afternoon birthday party for an OLD friend.  We’ll be back home way before dark.  He’s old…and will probably need to get to bed.

The wind seems to be gone, so it is gonna be a great day.  I declare it so.

You are never fully dressed without a smile.

Slap one on.  I’ve got mine!

I'm glad you had a great time on your cruise and the picture is awesome. I remember that very heavy gal on the right of the photograph. I remember her from BC4 and he's gained at least, well a lot from when I saw her last. So young too.

I'm glad you're taking care of yourself. I know MM is taking fantastic care of you. Won't be long and this will just be a memory.

Have a fabulous day honey, filled with smiles. Big hugs from cold but sunny California. ☺

Give that old birthday man a hug from me and have fun! I want to see some pictures. Taking a cheesecake and not having leftovers was a perfect plan for the potluck.

You were in the perfect spot as you were safer AND you can actually be seen in the vast sea of other faces!

Good job, MM! I had no doubt that he'd take excellent care of his honey!

Enjoy the day! big hugs xoxo

Haha, now I have that song from Annie stuck in my head...not that I'm complaining as that was my favorite movie when I was a kid.
